Students complete a 3 part activity to review President Wilson and his presidency. The first part has 5 questions to help students review factual parts of Wilson's presidency. In the second part of the activity students "interview" Wilson right after his inauguration (5 questions and answers), in the third part they conduct his last interview on his deathbed (5 questions and answers), and the last task is a bonus creative opportunity. An answer key is included where appropriate. This would work for a sub.
Sample questions include:
--Why was it so noteworthy at that Wilson nominated Louis Brandeis to the Supreme Court? Does that nomination still hold a significance today, why or why not?
--Provide an academic identification of each of the following items from Wilson’s first term. Then rank them in order of most to least important in America at the time they occurred and explain your ranking. Which has had the most lasting effect on America through today and why?
--What is the most important item on your presidential agenda?
--What do you think will be your biggest challenge in achieving your goals?
--Do you have any regrets from your time in office?
